Audrey June (Stahl) Demczyk
On April 19, 2017, Jesus came and touched Audrey’s shoulder and said time to come home. Audrey was born on June 6, 1930, in Johnstown, PA to the late George and Florence (Shirey) Stahl. Her family moved to York Twp. in 1944 where she went to York School. She worked at the Elmer Haring’s gas station/eatery where she met her future husband Frank Demczyk. They married in 1949 and started their life together on the family farm in York Twp. They farmed and raised 7 children until Frank’s death in 1972. Audrey’s life was devoted to feeding and nurturing everyone. You did not come into her home without being offered a meal and something to drink. She was always babysitting for anyone who asked her and she took in many of her children’s friends when life got hard for them at home.
